Easy Smoked Salmon Dip





Introduction: Easy Smoked Salmon Dip

This smoked salmon dip is super quick and easy to make, and a sure-fire crowd pleaser.  I mean who doesn't like smoked salmon and cream cheese?  Villains, that's who.  Some fresh dill and lemon juice freshen up this dip, and make it the perfect appetizer to serve with fresh vegetables and crackers.  The best part is, it takes less than five minutes to whip up! 

(Warning: it also takes less than five minutes to consume an entire bowl, so beware!)

Step 1: Ingredients

4 ounces (1/2 cup / 113g) sour cream
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
8 ounces (1 cup/ 226 g) cream cheese, at room temperature (or microwaved for 30 seconds)
4 ounces (113g) smoked salmon, minced

Step 2: Combine

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  

Grind in fresh salt and pepper to taste.

Mix well.  

Step 3: Assemble Appetizers

To make super cute finger-food appetizers, combine salmon dip with crackers, sliced cucumbers, halved mini tomatoes, and fresh dill.

Step 4: Devour

So cute you almost don't want to eat it!  almost

Seriously, try not to eat 10 of these in one sitting.

Try.  I won't judge.

    I've recently started adding capers and red onions, and dumping everything in my Cuisinart and pulsing until combined. So easy!

    GNOSH!!! GNOSH!!! GNOSH!!! and it's gone!!! Go ahead. Add the capers and onions. It's gone sooner.

    how many days to consume?

    How many does this make? I need to bring something for a potluck lunch tomorrow & I would really like to try this. Racking my brain trying to think of what to bring since I'm no good at cooking at all :(

    This really sounds delicious. I think I remember to have made a similar dip long ago.
    But what I really wanted to say is that I absolutely love how you presented the instructable.
    It would have never crossed my mind to use the cutting board to write on :-)
